Taking care of impure and oily skin properly: The most important factors in short

  • What is blemished skin?
    We encounter pimples, blackheads or even acne more often than we'd like. Unexpected and recurring symptoms of blemished skin appear on the surface of the skin. They are not only an aesthetic disruptive factor on our face, they also make the skin feel uncomfortable. Impurities arise when your skin is out of balance and the glands in the subcutaneous tissue produce more sebum than necessary. At the same time, there is increased cornification, which causes your sebum glands to clog.
  • How do you care for blemished skin?
    First things first - a thorough facial cleansing in the morning and evening. Dirt, sebum and make-up accumulate throughout the day and must therefore be carefully removed before going to bed so that they do not get into your pores overnight. Cleaning is also essential in the morning, as sweat, sebum and dirt accumulate on the surface of your skin overnight.
  • Which products are suitable for treating blemished skin?
    You should always use gentle and mild products that have an anti-inflammatory and antiphlogistic effect on your skin for treating blemished and oily skin. Active ingredients such as niacinamide,  vitamin B3 and salicylic acid are particularly effective in the treatment of blemished and oily skin. Care products containing vitamin B5 are also helpful as they can regulate sebum production and refine the size of your pores.

Further care tips for blemished skin

In addition to the daily use of care products that are adapted to your skin type and that nourish your skin with the right ingredients, you can counteract oily skin by taking simple measures in everyday life.


A balanced diet has a positive influence on healthy skin. Try to avoid foods high in sugar, salt, and fat as they promote sebum production. Fresh fruits and vegetables provide your skin with important nutrients that also promote general physical wellbeing. The following foods are particularly recommended as they are rich in vitamin A and zinc.

  • Walnuts
  • Linseed
  • Spinach
  • Broccoli
  • Paprika
  • Carrots
  • Grapefruit

Sun protection

Enlarged pores are often the result of too much sun exposure. To refine them, you should use a sun protection factor of 50+ every day. With adequate protection against the harmful UVA and UVB rays, you can prevent the risk of UV-related impurities and sun-related pimple marks. Applying a sun protection factor of 50+ is also essential in winter.

Tip: Although there is a sun protection factor in most beauty products, in most cases it is not strong enough to protect your skin from the harmful UVA and UVB rays.

Do not touch

Avoid pressing out pimples on your own. As tempting as it may be, please let it be. You endanger the affected pores, promote inflammation, the pores appear larger in the long run and scars can develop.


To refine your pores, the use of a mild facial scrub is recommended. The gentle peel loosens the old skin cells and removes excess sebum from your skin. With the regular use of a peeling you ensure a more even and finer-pored skin.

Steam baths

Hot steam for healthy skin - in addition to thorough cleansing, an occasional steam bath can work unexpected wonders. The hot steam opens the pores and supports the natural cleaning process. Warmth and moisture make your skin particularly supple. You can enrich your steam bath with essential oils to relieve inflammation and effectively prevent the formation of new impurities.
